Deputy Foreign Minister Kamarudin Jaffar said in Parliament that contact has been made via a delegation from the Global Peace Mission (GPM) last September to meet the Taliban leaders.

Through our embassy especially in Qatar, we have channels of communication with the current Afghan government for the purpose of ensuring that they can successfully create a state that gives human rights to all its citizens, democracy, and also women’s rights.
